A strength of the Wizards during their three-game winning streak has been the bench with Nene, who has missed a game already because of back spasms. But now, it looks like he's dinged up again.
The Warriors are now 15-0. Easily the top team in the league and definitely the top team in this week's power rankings.
After losing Trevor Ariza two years ago, the Wizards responded by adding Otto Porter and Kelly Oubre in the draft to give them depth and long-term stability.
The Wizards are about to embark on their toughest stretch of the young season with four games in five nights and there's not a soft touch among them.
Otto Porter wasn't given a full five seconds to inbound the ball in Saturday's game with 9.2 seconds left, the league determined in its report from the last two minutes.
